A new herbicide in the market
Alana, from Agrofina, is a product for the pre-planting of soybeans and prevent red yoke and black branch. The company also launched Aapresid Halox 81 and Kylian 48.

During the Aapresid Congress, from this Wednesday until Friday in Rosario, the Argentine company Agrofina will be present with its wide range of products and presenting Alana its new herbicide that guarantees maximum control of the red yuyo and black branch in soy.

Alana is a pre-sowing herbicide of exclusive formula, developed for the control of Conyza SP and Amaranthus SP in soybean cultivation. Its balanced formulation in diclosulam and flumioxazin is what allows a broad spectrum of control of difficult weeds.

Flumioxazin is a contact herbicide, with residual action in the soil, which acts by inhibition of the enzyme protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO). Diclosulam, on the other hand, is a systemic herbicide that acts by inhibiting the biosynthesis of the amino acid chain by interference with the enzyme acetolactate synthetase (ALS).

"In this way Alana is an integral solution to start planting crops that are free of difficult weeds," the firm said.

This herbicide has an excellent spectrum of control of difficult weeds, the balance of assets that guarantees Amaranthus SP and Conyza SP control and a combination of two mechanisms of action.

-Excellent spectrum of difficult weed control

-Combination of two mechanisms of action.

-Contact, systemic and residual action.

- Grass suppressor effect.

-Technological formulation with selected adjuvants that enhances herbicidal action and improves soil penetration

On the other hand, Kylian 48 is the most effective graminicide for the control of FOP-resistant Aleppo sorghum.
